OpenAPI Document Converters for Visual Studio 2017

by Howard van Rooijen

In my previous post I documented a technical spike I carried out to see how I could take the OpenAPI.NET SDK and create a Custom Tool in Visual Studio, in particular a Single-File Generator, that could be used to improve the Azure Functions v1 local development experience. Since then the OpenAPI.NET SDK reached v1.0 and while I was […]

OpenAPI code generators for Visual Studio

by Howard van Rooijen

Building RESTful APIs is a common activity at endjin. If you’ve seen our API Maturity Matrix, you’ll realise that we spend quite a lot of time thinking about the strategy, governance, legal, commercial, and operational side of building APIs along with the standard concerns of design, development, quality, infrastructure and support. One of the most […]

How to use Power BI Embedded with AspNetCore

by Matthew Adams

If you are looking to build an AspNetCore website, and take advantage of Power BI embedded, you’ve probably found that there isn’t any SDK support for basic report rendering (yet). While the underlying PowerBI.Core and PowerBI.Api assemblies work just fine, there is no equivalent to PowerBI.MVC, and PowerBI.Javascript fails to install correctly in the new […]

Microsoft Azure Most Valuable Professional 2016

by Howard van Rooijen

I’m honoured to announce that I’ve been awarded an Azure MVP award for 2016. I’m excited to have finally achieved a career goal I’ve been hankering after for almost a decade! I wanted to say a big thank you to Ed Price for noticing that I wasn’t an MVP already and submitting the nomination! I’m […]

We’re currently working on a project to migrate a customer from AWS to Azure. As always, we like to put a Continuous Delivery pipeline at the heart of the project to ensure there is zero friction pushing out changes across all dev, test and production environments. Two years ago I wrote about the process we […]

Like many other developers I’m sure, I spend quite a bit of time in command line applications (Windows CMD, PowerShell, etc.). Unfortunately, these applications don’t offer a lot in terms of customization. So I use ConEmu – a highly customizable, tabbed console emulator that lets you run any shell you want. This post describes how to setup ConEmu, and how […]

As I mentioned in a previous post (and also covered by Matthew) at the start of every year we clean up our core intellectual property (~100 projects), and re-evaluate our tool-chain. NuGet Packages are now the de facto standard (for better or worse) in the .NET ecosystem, and have become one of the biggest causes […]

ILMerge Meta-Runner for TeamCity

by Howard van Rooijen

At the start of every year we do a spot of spring cleaning; we tidy up all of our core intellectual property, harvest any useful code that we’ve written in the previous year, then give it all a thoroughly good refactoring; to ensure that the code is self-referencing all the new patterns and concepts. This has […]

Endjin.Licensing now supports SHA256

by Howard van Rooijen

Last year we open sourced an extensible licensing framework we created for an Azure / .NET based content platform we’re developing. We’ve just pushed an update that supports SHA256 for signing the license XML document. As this is a breaking change we’ve bumped the version number of the NuGet package to 2.x. For more information […]

The Problem If you use Git (and GitFlow) with Visual Studio (which seems like it is going to become a much more popular combination), I’m sure you are well aware of the pain that is the “merge conflict” you often encounter when trying to merge (or rebase) a branch. There are three file types that […]
